There’s definitely a lot to be said
For that runner’s high.
That beautiful drug, cycling through veins
And sweating out hot and poisonous thoughts.
It’s a therapy of kind,
But sunnier in nature
With a guilt-free pizza waiting at the end.
I did a nice long run before the hottest of the weather rolls in tomorrow. I haven’t been doing many long runs recently so it was nice to batter my legs and feel the pain.
I could write pages and pages about why I love running, even though I seem to hate it while I’m actually doing it. It’s like medicine, though; it’s not that pleasant to take it but it seems to fix some of the problems in your life, at least for an afternoon.
Today, in an attempt to be mindful, I concentrated on the road names that I passed. It’s funny how you don’t notice these things when you whizz by in a car. Some of them are so beautiful and the winning name today was a new estate that is being built that is called Poet’s Meadow.
How much do I want to live in a place called Poet’s Meadow?
I hope that you have all made the most of the sunshine this afternoon and evening and that you have something in your life that is therapeutic. It helps make life just that little bit more bearable and we all need those things in times like these.
